    Wis. ex-principal charged with having child porn

    "MAUSTON, Wis. — A former middle-school principal in Juneau County has been charged with 11 counts of having child pornography.

    The Baraboo News Republic says 58-year-old Thomas Reisenauer was charged Thursday. The School District of Mauston had placed him on administrative leave when the investigation began in March. The school board accepted his resignation the following month....."

    Another article with some background:

    http://www.nbc15.com/home/headlines/87390137.html

    Note: 32 comments here--be prepared for a lot of "I know Tom and Tom always has the best interests of children at heart...............". Ex-wives also figure in. Don't they always? Not only do child porn collectors and pedophiles have a playbook but so do communities. The guy is always helpful, caring, keeps a nice yard, has a vindictive ex-wife or two, children lie, and he's being framed. I guess it's just the really naive community members who bother to write comments. I wish they'd have to come back and eat their words when the truth (whatever it is) comes out. Do you think those naive people do actually wake up, though, if the person is proven to be a criminal? I'd like to think so. Wipe the sleep out of your eyes...


    Let me guess, Mr. Reisenauer was investigated for child porn and allowed to take an administrative leave. He was also allowed to resign rather than to be fired. The school district did some smooth phasing out. Do I have this right? Does the public somehow feel safer in reading headlines that say "Ex-principal"? Are we not smart enough to figure out that he WAS principal while he was engaging in collecting his nasty child porn AND dealing with children all day, everyday?

    Wouldn't it be much easier for some people if all pedos looked like monsters?!

    How ballsy of him to be looking up child porn on his SCHOOL COMPUTER! I noticed that the article was sure to mention that none of the images were of any of the students at the school.

    Lovejac--I've noticed that comment included in just about every single article where a perp is a teacher, coach or day care provider. It's like it's not quite so bad if it's not a local child or a child you know. Grrrrrrrr.

    While starting a thread on another Wisconsin educator, Michael Wang, I noticed that Reisenauer has been sentenced.....if you want to call 90 days a sentence.

    Great to know that Reisenauer "still cares deeply about children". Yikes!! And aren't there more appropriate treatments for depression out there??

    Reisenauer avoids prison
    December 15, 2011

    "A former Mauston school principal who used school computers to view pornographic images of underage females will not go to prison for the crime...."

    and

    "....Defense attorney Marcus Berghahn told the court before sentencing that Reisenauer was an addict who suffered mental problems and not a sexual deviate. "He used the school computer to self-medicate, to address his depression and to deal with the stress," Berghahn told the court. "Tom used pornography as others use alcohol...."

    90 days for child porn? Really? Wow.

    Our education system needs a HUGE overhaul. Quit focusing on test scores and all - start working on getting the right, UPSTANDING, MORALLY CORRECT people in our classrooms and the test scores will come.

    JMHO
